Implementing Time and Attendance Software is crucial for businesses looking to streamline their workforce management and reduce errors associated with manual time tracking. The software not only boosts productivity by automating employee time tracking but also integrates seamlessly with payroll systems, ensuring accuracy and compliance across HR processes.

Your company may have a strict time and attendance policy in place, but if all the data is being collected and managed manually, mistakes will inevitably happen…and those mistakes can be costly.

Reports indicate the U.S. economy loses roughly 50 million hours in productivity per day due to unrecorded work activities and other time-tracking inaccuracies. And as remote and hybrid working becomes more commonplace, those inaccuracies and errors are bound to grow.

For these reasons, many businesses have turned to an automated attendance management system for their employee time tracking.

Key Features of Time and Attendance Software

If you haven’t made the switch yet, here are some of the key features and benefits you’ll enjoy with a cloud-based, automated solution:

  • Easy-to-Use Scheduling Software: Quickly build shifts using a cloud-based system that provides real-time visibility of each employee’s availability, helping to minimize conflicts and overtime.
  • Accurate Time Collection: Prevent time theft and buddy punching through a variety of collection methods, from keypad entry to proximity readers to swipe card readers and more.
  • Automated Payroll Integration: Your time-tracking application resides alongside payroll, eliminating the need for duplicate data entry or importing time into spreadsheets.
  • Payroll Accuracy: No longer worry about errors regarding taxes, paid time off, overtime and compliance. All your employee information is streamlined to all your HR software…not just payroll.
  • Real-Time Reporting Tools: Access scheduling and reporting data in a snap, from employee hours, overtime, missed days, late arrivals and more. Reports can be autogenerated or customized.


Choosing the Right Time and Attendance Software for Your Business

When selecting a time and attendance software solution for your business, it’s important to note that not all systems are created equal. Make sure the one you choose includes the following features:

  • Clocking In and Out – either through manual entry, biometric time clocks or mobile apps.
  • Employee Scheduling – allowing managers to create, manage, and process schedules from one source.
  • Timesheets – for employees to record the time spent on different projects and tasks.
  • Leave Management – to record sick, vacation, personal days, etc., with access to each employee’s remaining allowed days.
  • Employee Self-Service – allowing your workers to view their schedules and enter requests or corrections to their attendance records.
  • Mobility – allowing you to review attendance and modify schedules anywhere/anytime, and employees to remotely clock in and out from any location.
